Scrap Wax Candle | Crafting

I’ve been saving up my spare candle wax through the Christmas season so that they could be combined with complementary scents.  Bath & Body Works really got our patronage this last season with the Star Anise scent (I’ve fallen in love with black licorice) and we just stock up on occasion whenever we find various…

Doctor Visit | Veg Update

It has only been about a week since I last posted on my Vegetarian journey, but I had a fun update.  I took a few days off work around my usual weekend and, in the anxious week before, it turned into doctor and dentist appointment (boo) way out in Little City. Now, I fall down…

Sketches!

It FINALLY happened!  I got not only my first iPad, but an iPad Pro 10.5” with an Apple Pen! As you probably know, I am trying to reduce my waste – resources, money, AND time.  My new laptop spent its first six months unusable with a defective motherboard and when I thought I could finally…

Cotton Afghan | part 1

I have finally begun an afghan for myself! I am using I Love This Cotton in Antique Cream and Green Apple with a 4 1/4 mm hook. This is the cotton variation of the I Love This Yarn that I have used for a number of years, almost exclusively, until after I moved to the big city and…
